SAN FRANCISCO (#1157) — Shaping up to be another great race. Would you stay on the better angle, or jibe (gybe!) for the pressure to the east? And never forget that, at the end of this race, a river runs through it. It's anyone's race. And it's not just a race for "line honours" (first to finish), but the race for top boat under the applicable handicap(s).
